Forget Gun Control, Here’s What Obama Really Wants

We’ve said all along that Obama hates having an empowered citizen (armed) and has been doing everything he can to dissuade, deter and destroy honest, law-abiding Americans from possessing firearms. Now he has upped the ante and citing other countries draconian – and anti-constitutional – laws to virtually eliminate gun ownership in the US. According to Breitbart:

In the mid-1990s Australia and Great Britain both instituted what were virtually complete bans on firearm possession.

Obama referenced the bans thus:

We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours — Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it.

And Obama is not the only one who suggested taking a gun-free approach to American life. The anti-Second Amendment message was also pushed by Slate, Vox, and Dan Savage.

For example, on October 1 Slate ran a story reminding readers that Australia enacted their gun ban in response to an attack on April 28, 1996, wherein a gunman “opened fire on tourists in a seaside resort in Port Arthur, Tasmania.”

Thirty-five were killed and 23 others wounded in the attack. Twelve days later Australia’s government banned guns, period.

On October 2 Vox explained that Australia “confiscated 650,000 guns” via a “mandatory gun buyback” program which forced gun owners to hand their firearms over for destruction.

Vox claims the result was that “murders and suicides plummeted’ and suggested such a path might be an option for America following “the murder of at least 10 people at Umpqua Community College.”

What these views fail to mention are the studies and reports that demonstrate guns saves lives. You may remember a few years, a brief effort by some stores putting “Gun Free Zone” on their windows to appeal to the “Politically Correct” movement. These stores very quickly saw a rash of burglaries, and quickly removed their signs.

And let’s look at simple common sense. We don’t see mass shootings at banks, everyone knows if you pull a gun in a bank, you’re likely to have a few pointing back at you just as quickly. However, schools are disgustingly “gun free zones” and easy pickens for deranged perpetrators.

What do you think? Should the US follow the lead of the UK and Australia? Or do you like the 2nd Amendment?

    “Forget Gun Control, Obama Wants Gun Confiscation”

      • independent thinker

        RC lives in an alternate reality.

      • independent thinker

        He has no reading and comprehension skills either especially comprehension. obama calls for US gun laws to mirror the laws of Australia or the UK. Those laws required the confiscation of privately owned firearms. Therefore obama is in favor of and wants to confiscate privately owned firearms. RC just cannot comprehend that reality.

      You wouldn’t believe it if it happened tomorrow you ignorant fool.

    Switzerland has the lowest violent crime rate in the world and it has a law requiring every household to have a gun. Liberals never mention that.

    • provobis

      Of course liberals never mention that! A perfect example of “A LIBERAL IS HE/SHE WHO SEEKS TO AVOID THE DISCIPLINES OF THE TRUTH”.

    • Tony Nash

      I like that concept.

    • mallen11

      That is exactly what we should do here in America.

    • Rocky Top

      That’s because Switzerland has no standing army, the citizens make up the military that’s why they are supplied with arms, ammunition and para-military training.

      • Rosech Levy

        And our Founding Fathers made US THE NATIONAL MILITIA AS WELL but liberals don’t like to be reminded of that at all. Sorry, stupid cannot be cured but you can be sure most liberals have weapons and many have weaponized guards. Hypocrisy!

      In 1941 when the Japanese military leaders proposed following up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of America. Admiral Yamomoto told them that would be a disaster, and that any invasion force would be wiped out to the last man. He said, “There will be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” They never attempted to invade because the citizens were armed. Now Hussein the Obaminable wants to bring in tens of thousands of his Islamic terrorists under the guize of them being “refugees. He has already flooded the country with Mexican and Cartel criminals.

      • Ted

        Exactly. And many of those crossing our so call border are ALSO jihadists, not just mexicans and central americans. Gun confiscation is as old as the Third Reich.

    • eagle keeper

      Then there’s that other country that begins with an S, Sweden. Home of the most beautiful women and here lately the most raped women. Raped by an insurgence of Moslime dirtbags.Are we sure that we want the problems that they bring with them to be imported to this country?? I know there are already some here. I guess the liberals are so desperate for votes that they will offer their daughters to be their rape toys?? I sure hope not. But then who said liberals were intelligent??

    The Japanese said invading the US main land would be suicide because they’re would be a gun behind every tree!!!! They WERE right!! The countries that banned guns MAY have reduced mass shootings but I bet big money gun crimes did not go down!! You know robbery murder rape etc….!!

    • Midnite Rider

      I believe it was a gun behind every blade of grass-But we get the message.

  • Robert

    When the Government takes your guns only the Criminals and Government will have guns. Criminals will always be able to acquire guns, if they have to steal from citizens to buy guns, they will do it. And the average citizen will
    not be able to defend him or her self. Remember the police only respond after a crime is committed, and in many cases its to late to help the victim.

    • art

      they are not responsible for your protect legally. there is only one person with that responsibility.

      WE HAVE A SECOND AMENDMENT SO WE CAN BY FORCE TAKE BACK OUR GOVERNMENT FROM TYRANTS LIKE WE HAVE RIGHT NOW IN OFFICE! ITS NOT FOR HUNTING OR JUST SELF DEFENSE BUT MOST AMERICANS DON’T KNOW THAT IS WHY THE SECOND AMENDMENT WAS CREATED BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS. THE DIRT BAGS THAT ARE NOW CONTROLLING MOST OF OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ARE TYRANT’S BREAKING THE LAW (CONSTITUTION) AND THEY KNOW IT. ITS WE THE PEOPLE VS THE WASHINGTON MACHINE OF CORRUPTION AND THEY ARE SCARED OF US BECAUSE THEY KNOW WE ARE HEAVILY ARMED AND THE MASSES ARE WAKING UP US SO THEY WANT OUR GUNS SO THEY CAN CONTROL US 100% LIKE SLAVES. THEY ARE CRIMINALS AND ITS GOING TO TAKE WE THE PEOPLE TO TAKE BACK OUR GOVERNMENT FROM THESE TYRANTS NOT SOME OTHER CORRUPTED BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT OR EVEN AT THE STATE LEVEL!!! WHY DO YOU THINK HOMELAND SECURITY HAS BEEN BUYING BILLIONS OF ROUNDS OF HOLLOW POINT AMMUNITION? YOU GUESSED IT US! LOCK AND LOAD WE ARE NOW IN THE SECOND REVOLUTIONARY WAR.

      • Daniel from TN

        It’s not just Homeland Security that’s buying ammo. Almost every government agency is stockpiling hollow point ammo. Even agencies that have no need for ammo because they do not have police powers are buying millions of rounds. What does the IRS, the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, and the Social Security administration need with ammo?
        Side Note. All these agencies are buying hollow point ammo: illegal in war between countries, but perfectly legal in civil war. Conclusion: the federal government expects and is preparing for civil war. In my personal opinion, I believe Liberals are deliberately herding the country towards civil war.

        • hankrbradley

          And the EPA gunboats and all!

        • eagle keeper

          They had better have the place they are hording all that ammo well guarded and protested. When we the people find out where it is. Well lets just say things will get interesting.

        • justicewillbeserved

          Yes you are right even the post office has been getting hollow point bullets with our tax payer dollars. When I hear federal I think corruption because it is corrupt in almost every branch and every level. How sick it is that we will probably soon be fighting a war with our own federal government and they will be using bullets to kill us that we payed for! As far as I’m concerned they can all go to hell.

    • hankrbradley

      Pray it doesn’t come to that, but if it does and criminals are the only ones to have guns, then I cross over to the dark side and become one!

      • eagle keeper

        AMEN to that brother.

    • eagle keeper

      Three little words. THEY CAN TRY.

  • missourisam

    That has worked out real well in Australia and Great Britain. Both of their crime rates have sky rocketed since average citizens do not have guns with which to defend themselves. Especially in England the politically correct nuts have gotten the English government to outlaw self defense. There has even been a movement to outlaw knives with points. Just how stupid can people be, and how much freedom are they willing to give up? I will refuse to be a victim, and I would think any sane person would feel the same way. Having been a police officer, I know that when you are in danger and need immediate help the nearest cop is minutes away in the best scenario, and some times as much as an hour in some cities. Personally if I am attacked, I will call 911 so they can come investigate the death of the one who is trying to kill me.

    • John Gillis

      When seconds count, the police are only minutes away! That’s all the police can do is investigate. They cannot protect, as it is physically impossible.

    • pete G

      Are you liberals convinced yet that this Muslim wanna-be wants our guns? How many of you who agree with this communist BS are willing to give this guy your protection? If you do it you will be just as much of a slave to his corrupt Government as i will.

    • Daniel from TN

      Some crimes in Australia have increased so much that officials cannot measure it. It seems the government forgot to tell the criminals they are no longer allowed to own guns! (sar)

    • hankrbradley

      Police investigate the murder…..seldom prevent it under existing protocols in many Democrat controlled cities and why should they when Democrat controlled cities are giving out millions to so called grieving families whose son/dad/relative ( “he is such a good boy,”) has died in a hail of police bullets while committing a crime or shooting at police or causing their own death(freddie boy gray)!

  • Willie C Mooneyham Jr.

    NO

  • Rocky Top

    Don’t forget that pesky little thing we have also known as the 2nd amendment which prevents old Forrest Gump in the White House from “illegally” taking our guns by Executive Action . Then there’s the fact that there are about 110 million legal gun owners in the country and our standing military and all the law enforcement Nation wide amount to about 4 million if that. So I would say if push comes to shove it will get ugly very fast and we will have to defend our Country from a Tyrannical Government once again.

    • pete G

      Anyone in our military who would fight for this criminal POS in the white house is out of their flippen mind. He has sh—t on them many times and cares nothing about them. They should turn the guns on him. Veterans under this slime ball have been treated like dog poop by him. He even shut down the ww2 veterans Memorial when it wasn’t even necessary.

      • eagle keeper

        I am a VietNam vet. I came through that war without a scratch. Many of my brothers in arms weren’t so lucky. They have to fight for the proper care we as a nation promised them. The younger generation is getting treated less than one would treat a dog. So having said all that, how many members of the military are going to go along with the pos anti-gun stance and confiscation?? Not many I will say. So his ultimate liberal gun grab is probably at best a pipe dream. I don’t think the military has his back.

        • pete G

          Welcome home eagle i am also a VietNam vet ad i am praying that people will not side with this hooligan and will put him in his place at the right time. Dying on my feet is much better than living on my knees, if you can call that living.

    • Daniel from TN

  • joe

    To carry a gun is a civilized act.

    When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gang banger. When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation… and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

    are guns. This whole mess could have been avoided years ago if we had
    politicians that had balls to impeach this anti-Israel, anti-American and
    pro-Muslim, trader. He would like to take this country over with the least
    resistance possible, and is prepared to do everything in his power to succeed.
    He hate’s what the United States stands for and knows he must bankrupt the country
    to successfully create a dictatorship. Remember; Hitler was able to take-over
    Germany because they were bankrupt. (That is what global warming is all about).
    It would add burdensome regulations, costing industry billions, which would
    lead to high double digit unemployment. Right now, we have a choice,
    between freedom and Bondage. Choose Wisely!!!!

    • Daniel from TN

        I think that would be it for our country ! oeople are so blind

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    I think maybe, here in lays the answer. There are well over 300 million guns in this country, about 300 million are owned by private citizens, the rest are in the hands of police, military, private security, etc. Those 300 million that are privately owned are in the hands of Republicans, Democrats, and independents. The number of independents are growing daily, independent has many meanings, and varied leanings. There are only about 20% of the population that are fully, and truly, Left-Wits, and about the same number could be considered to be “far right” “Far Right” has many blurred lines, but no matter, they fall into line with the vast majority on many issues. So then, it would appear that no more then 20% of the population would support gun confiscation. Why would this P O S president, along with his minions want the majority American people united on a common front, when “they” have done just about everything possible to divide this nation. If the American people can and do become united on a common front like this one, then what is to prevent them from becoming even more united, if that were to happen, then everything from Bush 1 to Obama, goes down the toilet, and all the media manipulators go down with them. So, NO, there will not be gun confiscation, and Obama will leave office.
    “They” might try some sort of gun turn in program, based on Obama Care, re-health and safety issues, use higher premiums for gun owners, or threat cancellation of health insurance, but that won’t happen until after the next election, and then too, only if the Hilda-Beast, Sanders, or some other left-wit becomes president, and Obama Care stays.

  • Ronald E. Rowley

    The founding of Australia and Great Brittan were alltogether different that the founding of the United States of America, they were not founded on the ashes of a war for independence where the ownership of arms was critical to wining our independence. We learned from that. What we learned was that the surest way to maintain independence from a tyrannical government was to continue to bear arms and, if necessary, overthrow that government and replace the tyranny with a government that would safeguard the rights of its citizens as opposed to one that continually eroded those rights. Further, studies over long periods of time which acquired thr actual data regarding the relationship between gun ownership and acts of crime, prove that when gun ownship is on the increase, crime is on the decrease. The only people to gain from disarmings the general citizenry are criminals including those the occupy the seats of authority.

  • Betty Hanner

    we are not stuiped enough to giv that thing in the w.h. our gun you better keep them loaded because I have a felling we will be using them pretty soon my gun is all way loaded

  • Original Anna

    Australia was founded as a penal colony for Great Britain. Only the guards had guns yet there are still killings by other methods. I would be curious to see what their murder rate by guns and non-guns since the sixties has been. I notice no murder rate to use for comparison after the guns were ripped out of their non-killing citizens hands. Britain is different from us. It has killings and anyone arrested for murder is assumed guilty and the arrested one has to prove they are innocent. In the U.S. the killer is assumed innocent and the people has to prove the arrested one guilty. Which system would you as a killer have a better chance of not landing in jail and therefore has less fear of the results of their killing. Sometimes fear of being immediately considered quilty and kept in jail holds a bigger control over the brain than thinking you can get away with murder because it has to be proven you actually did commit murder. The article does not say if Australia and Great Britain have in their Constitutions that citizens have the right to own guns without infringement. It may not be a part of their Constitutions because ours is based on peoples’ freedoms and their countries were based on control by an individual like a King with all power concentrated in the King and not the people. The only ones with guns were the Kings men and not the average man. Big difference. This country was built on getting away from their laws and their control by one individual. Like I said big difference.

  • apzzyk

    I liked the 2nd Amendment when it still had the ‘well ordered militia’ as an important part. But, in its most recent decision which omits this, and the unwillingness of the gun owners to self regulate, I think that it has gone beyond its absurd limits. I agree with the Brady Bill and background checks, but I think that it should include a part which makes the peotential gun owner show a reasonable need, and that should include the type and all of the rest. All of the men in my neighborhood are currently off on the annual deer hunt, which I think is needed to control the populations since we no longer have natural predetors, but think that they should be re-introduced because there are now too many people hunting, even with the restrictions on number imposed by the State Government. When I was 60 uears younger, I managed to kill the occassional bunny or really odd duck with my single shot .22 rifle and .410 shotgun. That gave the target a chance, so I also supported the assault gun ban. When hunting we had strict limits on the number of rounds which could be in the firearm at one time. In the USMC, my M1 only had an 8 round clip capacity, and the reason for the later rifles were because the enemy had similar fire power. A deer or Elk has no firepower, but there are prople out there hunting these animals now with these firearms, so the sport is gone. In my opinion, there is little to no need for most people to have hand guns at all, and so for these there should be an additional needs test – being afraid of the monster under ones bed should not count. I have had PTSD for almost 60 years, and after the USMC and a medical, which would, under current law not prohibit me from having a firearm, I disarmed byself and have never felt the need to have any firearms. Just one death due to a firearm is way too many for me, but now the mass killings have become routine, and there would not be so many of them with reasonableness. There must be reasonable restrictions in order to avoid full confiscation.

      Do you read what you write? Or do you just blab a bunch of your nonsense for the hell of It. First off Mr Know It all but Know nothing! There are not Too many people hunting now a days! Its a known FACT that there are less Hunters now than 35. Yrs ago. And There are more deer and elk now because of HUNTERS! We put more money in one year to conservation than you Tree hugging Know it all’s Ever have! Another FACT! And hears one for you Mr I gave the Odd duck a SPORTING CHANCE as you Wounded it to go off and die a week later! For using too small of a gage shot gun(witch a410 is classified as a rifle) because its too small to be a gage. So while in your twisted thinking that you were Mr sporting. You are actually a UNETHICAL SLOB THAT SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOUR SELF. I’m so glad sportsmen of today Know what they are doing. And have enough love for the game to give it a clean harvest. NOT WOUND IT UP TO DIE A Painful drawn out death. Don’t. Spew your verbal diarrhea about things you know NOTHING ABOUT! One Hunting and game management. Or Guns or gun control. Go hug a tree and dance naked with your hippie friends and keep your stupidity to your self. J.J.Jackson 35 yr professional Hunting guide and Fire arms Expert!

        The nice things about the firearms that I used then were that they were very short range, and the places that I hunted were usually stubble fields, so I could see if I had hit something and just wounded it so that if I did I could find it and finish it off, and there was also the fact that I was physically fit so that I could actually track it down – just small game. This week, my neighbor, who is in his 40’s is out there looking for a deer, probably with one of his father -in-law’s 30 cal rifles. From what I know of him, he has a desk job where he gets no exercise other than following the lawn mower around once a week. So he is in no physical condition to actually track a wounded animal the size of a deer far enough to make sure that it was not wounded. Too many of those types of ‘hunters’ now. In CO all of the licence fees go to the Department of wild life for habitat and other conservation activities, and I do make contributions to things like Ducks Unlimited for the same purpose. Then there are the strictly trophy hunters who just use a chain saw to cut of the head and leave the rest to rot. Then we always hear about the hunters who have taken a ‘sound shot’ or a moving brush shot. About 25 years ago there were a couple of kiss riding a motor cycle and some ‘hunter’ mistook them for an elk and killed both of the kids and was actually acquited. During hunting season kids should not be out driving their motor cycles and letting some one who is bothered by the noise take shots at them. Then there are all of the 4-wheelers – these might be useful in retrieving game killed, but are of no use in trailing one. Some hunters just should not be there doing what they are doing.
        Then, earlier this year, the residents of Nederland, CO petitioned the Forest Service to put the area surrounding the town as a no hunting area, but there was one ‘hunter’ who did not live there that went to the meeting and protested that his 2nd Amedment rights would be violated. The residents had pictures of spent rounds which had hit their cars, houses, cabins. People like this 2nd Amendment guy actually show that they have no respect at all for the rights of others.
        On the other hand, the City of Estes Park has had the money to annex the buffer zone around it, so at any time of the year one can go and watch the elk and a few deer graze on the golf course or in the front or back yards of houses or condos. The one guy who did kill one inside of the City limits, is doing something like 10 years.
        All that I really want is to have those with guns use them responsibly and exercise some common sense. Of the ones up there now only about 1 in 10 will actually bring back any animal at all, so again, if we do get much snow this year, it will be the state using the licence fees to keep the animals alive through the winter if they can. I still think that we should bring back the perditors, but the ranchers would complain and shoot them as they are doing in ID.

        • Triple J Jackson

          Again. Wrong. There were plenty larger firearms to do the job correctly. You just made the choice to use too small of a tool to to the job. So you had to “Finish it off” and I have never SEEN. Or even herd of someone “Chainsawing” a trophy head off. Again something you know nothing about. To properly CAPE a trophy it’s a job that takes time and skill. As far as someone shooting at bushes moving NO HUNTER would ever risk wounding a animal or hurting someone. Rule 1 is always know your target and back drop. And predators. Let me tell you about. Predators. They kill anything they can. So YOU IN YOUR LITTLE SUBDIVISION ARE ALL SAFE. But the ones like Me and my kids and Grandkids have to deal with them. This year alone I have lost 17 calf and no telling how many fawn to predator. My grandkids can’t go out and play without some one with a GUN (THATS RIGHT A TOOL FOR PROTECTION) To watch over them. As far as your neighbors. And there shape hunting that’s there right to hunt and harvest. Meat for HIS family. Non of your business. Its people like you that spread the bullshit that make it hard for outdoors men and farmers and hunters. You should be ashamed of your self. This is America. We have a right to hunt and fish and have protection while doing so. Go bla bla your bullshit to some one who doesn’t know the Truth!

          • apzzyk

            The .22 and .410 were perfect for the use that I did with them. Short range and just enough to bring down a bunny or a pheasant. One of the things that lead to my female friend divorcing her KS wheatfarmer/big game hunter earlier this year was is use of a a 9 mm to blow away bunnies just for the fun of it. He also gave her a hand gun for her self protection, and lucky for us all, he did not tell her how to get it out of its holster. I have lived in the same house since it was built in 1946, on what was then a small farm – raised a calf as my 4-H project, and at that time there was a pond with duck, muskrats, etc. about 1/4 mile away, so we could hunt there – now surrounded by city and all that is left is an acre – the developers got to us, pond has become city park with no hunting allowed – to dangerous. The subdivisions are all around me, and I have to respect their best interests, and we pay taxes to have a very good PD – one murder in last 10 years in now a city of about 100K. I had fox on my acre for years, but the city got a complaint and poisoned them – against the law, but ??? Now over run with mice, which I could not hope to hit with a gun. Mouse traps work. I cuuld survive in rural areas like the one I was born and raised in, but I doubt, with your attitudes that you would do well in an urban area, but you, your kids, and your grand kids are probably going to have to adapts because urban areas keep gaining population while rural areas keep loosing it, so if you look at how the house is currently divided, the Blue reps come from urban areas and the red ones come from rural areas, so last time there was redistricting in CO, the R who did this had to take more red area away from on district, and put it is play, just to keep one safe red district, so this year the competitive district seems to be at least a light blue. The same trend is going on across the country. So even the gerrymandering that is keeping the Conservatives in control of the house is going to become no longer possible.

          • Triple J Jackson

            Man your all over the place. First off I live on My farm 890acres and I’m the small one. My family lives on there part. Everyone has 50 acres themselves deeded for one household with green belt. And our town is full of outdoors men that all hunt and I have never herd of a accident other than falling and one bear attack. That the HUNTER did everything he could to Not kill the bear. So don’t act as though hunters are bloodlust killers. Again you are commenting on something you know nothing about. As far as the guy Blowing away bunny with a 9mm I call bullshit have you ever tried to hit a Bunny with a 9mm. And no HUNTER kills anything for the fun of it. Every animal is valuable. If you want to know why the subdivisions are growing its because too many people are coming to Our country. So why don’t you admit the real problems. Because Hunters and Guns are not them! And get a friggin cat for Christ sake and stop living in rats.

    All along “Gun Control” has been about People Control–control of the sheeple. Obama views himself as a reincarnation of Hitler, or Stalin. He is the embodiment of 1984. As long as the citizens stay armed, they will stay free. When we give up our guns, we give up our freedom and become nothing more than slaves of the state.

    If all of you were not having children, and raising them with that mentality, we probably would not even need bans. You would have taught your children NOT TO PERFORM VIOLENT ACTS. You probably had kids who bullied others and said “that’s part of growing up.” WRONG! It is something that is done but is MORALLY wrong. We are not supposed to be harming other living beings of any kind. My children would not harm any living being. Can you say the same for yours? I doubt that – since you all have no problem harming others. I practice W.W.J.D. and He would definitely NOT BE PACKING A GUN.

    • Triple J Jackson

      You people talk bad about the gun like it’s a big evil monster a gun is no different than a hammer. I use a gun EVERY DAY! I have never harmed anyone. My kids all have there own firearms. We a a family. Of sportsmen we all hunt I guide. Hunters from the city. Don’t think its guns that are bad.you seem smarter than that. It’s just a tool and a fun thing to shoot If you have never shot for sport. Try it you owe it to yourself. Skeet and long range center fire are two big hits at my range. Honestly EVERY PERSON that comes here that has reservations about firearms Leaves asking me as to which brand they should buy themselves. Don’t be hoodwinked by the media. If you liked to drive a sports car but every one said They kill people. Would you stop driving one?

    Britons forget their history. In 1215 the barons forced the King to sign the Magna Carta which in part guaranteed the citizens right to arms. Over the centuries, the monarch would take away that right whenever he/she wanted to forcefully impose their will on the people – and later, in every case, the people forced them to give back the right to be armed. The Britons are now in the depth of being disarmed to the point that there are proposals to limit KNIVES because people are being stabbed versus shot! If it were in the US, the Democrats would be demonizing knives versus the criminals who were wielding them.

    Just remember, in Switzerland one of every two citizens is armed and they have the lowest gun fatality (and crime) rate in the civilized world.

  • EdB

    Whether I “like” the 2d Amendment or not totally misses the point. It IS the law of the land, and no Exec Order or congressional action can change that. Initiate a repeal of the 2d Amendment or stfu already. Maybe Boz would want to include the 1st, 4th and 10th Amendments at the same time. Go for a “bundle”.

    I think it’s time to humble ourselves and admit the wisdom of the Founding Fathers who wrote and implemented our Constitution. It has been a guide for our government for our entire existence as a country. While the US is imperfect, it has been and is still the envy of the world. There is a reason for that! No more progressivism, no more selective disobedience. Respect the Constitution and live by its wisdom — it is an honor to do so, and definitely safer for everyone who lives here.

    I Wonder if anyone sees that most, not all, of these shootings are carried out by young males. I believe the urge to “wipe someone out” is common in our culture. Just watch a football game . Most video games feature shootings. The need to kill is ingrained in our culture. Gun education, not confiscation is the answer.

    Following the Port Arthur massacre, Australian gun buybacks of 1996 and
    2003 were compulsory, compensated surrenders of particular types of firearms
    made illegal by new gun laws.

    The 1996 “National Firearms Buyback Scheme” took 660,959 long
    guns, mostly semi-automatic rim fire rifles and shotguns as well as pump-action
    shotguns, and a smaller proportion of higher powered or military type
    semi-automatic rifles. Because the Australian Constitution requires that the
    Commonwealth may only take private property in return for “just
    compensation,” the Government increased the Medicare Levy, from 1.5% to
    1.7% of income, for one year to finance compensation. No licenses for self-defense
    are allowed under these laws. Sports shooters and hunters need to have a
    license to own and use legal sporting guns – they must be 18 or older and they
    bust keep their guns under lock & key in their homes, but otherwise are
    free to use them for hunting and other shooting sports.

    The 2003 handgun buyback also took about 50,000 licensed target pistols.
    New handgun laws made illegal target pistols of greater than .38 caliber and
    handguns with barrels less than 120mm (semi-automatic) or 100mm (revolvers)
    such as pocket pistols. As a result of consultation with Australian peak
    sporting groups an exception was granted for pistols greater than .38 caliber
    used for Handgun Metallic Silhouette and Western Action competitions.

    Following the buybacks, the proportion of
    Australian households that had at least one gun dropped from 15 per cent to 8
    per cent as a result of the buyback. Guns held legally by licensed sports
    shooters remained constant.

    In
    the decade before the gun buyback, Australia averaged more than one mass
    shooting per year (a mass shooting is where five or more people are killed).
    Between 1987 and 1996, a total of ninety-four victims were killed in mass
    shootings. Apart from Hoddle Street and Port Arthur, there were also mass
    shootings in the Top End (Northern Territory and Western Australia), Canley
    Vale (New South Wales), Queen Street (Victoria), Oenpelli (Northern Territory),
    Surry Hills (New South Wales), Strathfield (New South Wales), Terrigal (New
    South Wales), Cangai (New South Wales) and Hillcrest (Queensland).

    In
    the decade after the laws were changed, there was not a single mass
    shooting in Australia. The chance of this change being due to luck alone is
    less than one-in-a-hundred. Judged by whether it prevented mass shootings, the
    Australian gun buyback was an unmitigated success.

    In 2011, Harvard’s David Hemenway and
    Mary Vriniotis reviewed the research on Australia’s suicide and
    homicide rate after the NFA. Their conclusion was clear: “The NFA seems to
    have been incredibly successful in terms of lives saved.”

    What they found is a decline in both suicide
    and homicide rates after the NFA. The average firearm suicide rate in Australia
    in the seven years after the bill declined by 57 percent compared with the
    seven years prior. The average firearm homicide rate went down by about 42
    percent and continues to decline.

    In sum, actual deaths per capita by firearms in Australia is about 1/6th
    of the rate in the US, and most of these are either suicide or family disputes,
    not crimes of violence or terrorism, although Australia has had two instances
    of Islamic terrorist killings in the last 24 months. Teenage suicide in
    Australia is a much more significant problem, much of it apparently related to
    abuse of “Ice” – methamphetamine.

    The THING in the White House is a reprehensible venomous vermin communist viper thug traitor. It should have been executed as a result of several charges of treason many moons ago. But, the crooked FBI is his puppet. Our communist coward and traitor Congress is hired by our collective votes. The House Speaker is a gutless communist coward and a puppet for Opukit bin Traitor. The time is NOW to remind them, the communist cowards in Our Congress, of this truth in the form of 200 million letters to each of these cowardly traitors in Our Congress. The written opinion of the voters carries weight. The threat of public exposure in the lamebrain communist mainline media carries even more weight, provided the threat is published. What we really require is the arrest of several of the communist traitor media elite on many charges of treason followed by public execution by hanging. This action, although severe, will get the attention of the other reprehensible venomous vermin viper communist thug traitors before they leave Our Sovereign Constitutional Republic of Our United States of Our America permanently. Then, we must have a Second American Revolution at the ballot box and get rid of the scumbag thugs like Opukit bin Traitor and his scumbag communist traitor thug crowd permanently. Burying all of them and Opukit bin Traitor under a dung pile would seriously pollute the dung pile.
